Elliot Page opened up about his sexual identity last year. An excerpt from his open letter read, "I love that I am trans. And I love that I am queer." The Umbrella Academy star thanked his supporters and added, "I feel overwhelming gratitude for the incredible people who have supported me along this journey. I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self."
Earlier this year, he featured on the cover of Time magazine and he stated that he always "felt like a boy." He added that as a 9-year-old, he would often ask his mother if he "could be a boy."
Elliot Page, best-known for starring in Netflix's The Umbrella Academy and the 2007 film Juno, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award, credits the trans community for inspiring him. He received massive support from Hollywood's A-listers and members of the LGBTQ community after he came out as a trans last year.
